59-Year-Old Grandmother Still Going Strong As A Fashion Model

In their late 20s, most women aren’t considering modelling careers, let alone at 59. But not only is 59-year-old grandmother Yasmina Rossi a fashion model, she’s a successful one too, working with numerous famous international brands like Marks & Spencer, Hermes and Macy’s.She was born in France in 1955 and was raised on the island of Corsica.

Naturally, everyone wants to know how she’s maintained her relatively youthful looks and good health. “There is no big secret,” she told the Sunday Times’ Style magazine. “All I have ever done is eat organic food – long before it became trendy. I take oil and use it on my skin: I put rapeseed oil on my hair. I scrub my skin once a week with olive oil and fine sugar. I eat an avocado a day and organic meat and fish.”

In addition to her successful modeling career, Rossi is also a photographer and an advanced ceramist. Check out her website to see more of her work!

She is stunning! If her hair wasn't gray you could easily say she is in her 40's.

I found her grey hair an extra bonus to her beauty. :)
